Cairo-Durham Elementary School under scrutiny

Aug 29, 2013 6:46 am
Kyle Adams reports in The Daily Mail the condition of the Cairo-Durham Elementary School recently came under attack by community members who question the building’s safety and upkeep. Several parents and teachers raised concerns at a board of education meeting last week about holes in the floors, leaking toilets and other safety hazards in the nearly 75-year-old building. Last year, the building housed approximately 140 students enrolled in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Under the newly implemented elementary grade-level realignment plan, it will hold twice that many students in Kindergarten through second grade. Adams reports the items complained of have now been repaired, or will be taken care of before the first day of school next week. The building has also been inspected and cleared by Needham Risk Management, an Albany-based environmental, health and safety consulting group. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
